Film Archive to present free screening of "Love in a Fallen City"
     The Hong Kong Film Archive (HKFA) of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department will present a special series entitled "Cine Memories of the War of National Resistance" on September 1. "Love in a Fallen City" (1984), selected for free screening this year, reflects the Hong Kong society of a wartime era through a tumultuous love story.
     The film will be screened at HKFA Cinema. Admission is free with tickets which will be distributed at the information counter of the HKFA starting tomorrow (August 7) on Mondays and from Wednesdays to Sundays from 10am to 8pm. Each person can receive up to two tickets on a first-come, first-served basis while stocks last.
     Adapted from a literary classic by Eileen Chang, the movie directed by Ann Hui sticks closely to the novel's plot. After her divorce, Cora Miao returns to her parents' home in Shanghai, where she meets handsome gentleman Chow Yun-fat. They later move from Shanghai to Hong Kong, and repeatedly separate and get back together. The outbreak of the Pacific War pushes them together and perfects their love. The film is in Cantonese with Chinese and English subtitles.
